After announcing her marriage last week, Monica followed up with another big announcement. The R&B singer shared with her Twitter followers that she is preparing to release her 7th studio album, titled New Life.

“Can’t wait until you guys hear New Life,” she wrote on Twitter. “This album speaks volumes about my WHOLE life. Hurt, happiness, pain, love, joy, my kids & redemption. The pain I’ve experienced makes me appreciate the love I have” she continued “So 2nite we taking it back. I’m singing about heartbreak on a mid tempo. Luv it.”

Monica’s new album “New Life” will serve as the follow-up for her 2010 gold-selling album Still Standing, and is due to hit stores sometime this summer. In addition, the singer/songwriter is also planning to release a Christmas album near the end of the year.
